Think of your computer as your home, where you have your furniture (files) and your important documents (personal information). In your own home, you do not wish for others to come and go as they please. This is the reason for buying, or already owning, a lock on your door. Your door can be viewed as the firewall on your computer. A firewall keeps strangers on the internet out of your computer. If you want to protect yourself further, you set up an alarm system with emergency service in your home. The alarm system will register break-ins, and the emergency service will handle the situation. An antivirus program is simultaneously your alarmsystem and emergency service, which keeps an eye on unwanted files, and removes them. It is a good idea to protect yourself with a good firewall and an antivirus program, in order to keep computer-thieves out.
The furniture in your home are the files on your computer
In the case of a computer attack, you can lose some files or, in the worst case scenario, all of your files. It is important to save your files in a safe spot, to have access to your irreplacable pictures, songs or documents at all times. If you have numerous irreplacable files on your computer, a safe place is essential for your protection. We have developed such a place in the cloud called Chili Cloud, where you can store all your files safely. Chilli Cloud is very user friendsly, and if you are familiar with Dropbox, you understand Chili Cloud.
